Board of Directors




Peter L. Corsell, Chairman

Peter L. Corsell is an entrepreneur known for building successful technology companies that address longstanding social challenges.  MIT’s Technology Review recognized him as one of the world’s top innovators under age 35, the World Economic Forum named him a Young Global Leader in 2010, and he is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
 
Corsell is Chairman of GridPoint, which he founded in 2003 and led as CEO until 2010.  An established cleantech leader and a pioneer in the Internet of Things, GridPoint enables businesses, utilities and government agencies to maximize energy savings, operational efficiency and environmental sustainability.  The company has deployed more than 450,000 connected devices, has saved its customers more than 2.4 billion kilowatts of energy and has reduced carbon emissions by approximately one million metric tons.  GridPoint has received honors from The World Economic Forum, Bloomberg Businessweek and The Guardian, and has been featured in books by Thomas Friedman, Fred Krupp, Robert Galvin and Kurt Yeager.
 
Corsell is also the founder and CEO of Hubub, a platform designed to help fulfill the Internet’s original promise as the global public square.  During the events of the 2011 Arab Spring, Corsell recognized that there were many great places online to read news but no great place to discuss it.  He developed Hubub on new technology that combines social networking and publishing capabilities, enabling multimedia group conversations around any topic.  The service was launched in beta at the end of 2013 with $8.5 million in Series A funding, and cited by TechCrunch as a pioneer in an emerging field.
 
Corsell is also a driving force behind other venture-backed technology companies.  Clearpath is a web-based service that streamlines the U.S. immigration application process, minimizing time, errors and legal fees; and inStream is an online platform designed to bring highly personalized financial planning advice to consumers.
 
Corsell serves on the board of the Wolfsonian Museum in Miami Beach, a collection focused on social, historical and technological change.  Earlier in his career, Corsell served with the U.S. Department of State in Havana, Cuba, and as a political analyst at the Central Intelligence Agency.  He holds a BSFS degree from the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University.
